Green-and-Rufous Kingfisher in Costa del Este, a report by Rolando Jordán


On Wednesday September the 4th in the afternoon, just before a storm, Rolando Jordan visited Costa del Este, walking from the Matias Hernandez bridge, to Capital Plaza building, using the forest in front of mangroves to do it. The place was full of seedeaters, yellow warblers, and wrens. Several trees has fallen because the big rains that recently hit the area.
Approximately in the middle, there is a swamp covered by mangrove trees, but the recent rains has open some areas. A Green-and-Rufous Kingfisher was perching in a thick branch, stayed there for some minutes and then flew inside the mangroves.
The bird has strong bill, rufous breast and belly, and green colored from the head to the tail.
